I'm in the mood to get creative about capturing ordinary birds in a different style, doing different things. So I think of this as a TrekLens approach to TrekNature.
Hope you like it - just a gull preening.

I like it a lot, John.
Creative is good : )
Interesting POV of a mundane act by a common animal,
but what a fresh way of looking at it.
Very aesthetically presented.
Very sharp details and an amazingly white gull. : 0
TFS. : )


Amazing white explosion.

Pretty picture of white with a little yellow, red and black! Good results John, but I feel the edges are a bit scratchy and might have been damaged with the PP. Still a wonderful shot, thank you,

Hi John! What a beautiful photo! Nice POV and good timing and focus!

I like the white and composition. The nearly square frame works well. Looks like your crop is a bit much though, lots of grain is showing through. Still I like the White on white and the eye and bill really show through in this kind of image.
